press release
Friday, February 22, 2013

Second SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference Scheduled for October 22-24 in Stamford, Conn.

 

The organizers of the SHIPPINGInsight Conferences have announced that the 2013 Fleet Optimization Conference will take place Oct. 22-24 in Stamford, Conn.

 

In its second year following a successful inaugural launch, SHIPPINGInsight 2013 returns to the Sheraton Stamford Hotel with a number of important changes: more engaging panel sessions moderated by shipowners, more case studies, tabletop exhibits, and networking opportunities. 

 

“We listened to our delegates’ feedback and are confident that this year’s conference will be better than the last in terms of content and return on investment,” said Frank Soccoli, co-producer, SHIPPINGInsight. “The challenges faced by the shipping industry are always at the forefront of our conferences and how we, as an industry, can help each other find solutions through engaging ourselves not just in conversations, but actions.”

 

The final agenda and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. The preliminary schedule includes panel sessions on Meeting the Environmental Challenge, Designing for Efficiency, Fuel and Propulsion Management, System Monitoring and Maintenance Management, Voyage Optimization, and Ship Performance Optimization. Also planned is an open forum of shipowners on Managing Organizational Change.

 

“These are trying times for shipping fleets, pressed by overtonnage, tight credit, rising fuel prices, low freight rates and increasing costs of regulatory compliance,” said conference co-producer Jim Rhodes. “The purpose of this conference is to discuss solutions and best practices for optimizing efficiency of operating ships under these extremely difficult conditions.”

 

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for companies wanting to elevate their marketing efforts. Contact Frank Soccoli at fsoccoli@shippinginsight.com.
